I signed up in September. Once they received my paperwork in the mail, I called and got my id# the next day.

I mailed my paperwork in on 12/30 and called on 1/4 and got my demo number, and placed a order that day. My demo kit and order came the same day (one week later - I live in PA)! What service!

CONGRATS ON SIGNING UP! You will love it!

I sent in my paperwork Friday, a week ago. Monday was MLK Day so no activity. I called Wednesday morning and they had not processed my #. They told me it is best to call around 4 PM because they usually have everything entered for the day by then. I called at 4 and they gave me my number. My kit is due to arrive tomorrow, Monday.

I sent in my paperwork January 30th regular mail, they had my number on January 7th (they were swamped with demo applications) and I ordered that day some supply items!! Then received my kit January 13th only 6 days after they shipped it!!!! Once you get your number you can track your starter kit on the demonstrator part of the SU website....

To clarify, the minimum is $300 retail (or catalog) price. If you're buying mostly for yourself, that's $240 after the discount but before tax and shipping.

HTH,

Regarding quarterly minimums -- also good to know that the $300 is waived for the quarter in which you sign up. Example -- I signed up in this month -- but don't have to meet the minimum until during the April - June quarter.

I have thought about being demo for many many years now. With my husbands career, it would make it really difficult for me to sell. How do some of you make your minimums without hosting a lot of shows? I know a little bit about the groups that order monthly and take turns being the hostess so they can get hostess benefits. What other ways are there to make your minimum?

Well, tiggerificandi, you should be able to meet your minimums by only doing 1-2 workshops per quarter. That's one every six weeks, which is not often. Or you could have classes in your home (if possible) and charge people to attend. If they placed an order you could refund part of the class price. If they don't order, you can use the class fee to make your own order.

You can teach classes as well as the monthly clubs... and getting a few good friends interested in your hobby helps too!! I also am an Air Force wife, now Reserve Air Force.... DH is in OTS as we speak!!!
Where are you all stationed?

I would like to become a demo, and it would be great to do it during SAB so I can take advantage of all the great recruiting incentives. My only thing is, I don't have any space in my house where I can hold a workshop or teach a class. My kitchen is a small galley-style with no room for a table, and I don't have a dining room (we use it as the living room, and the living room has been converted into a third bedroom). What can I do to be sure I can reach my minimums, as I can't order enough to do it by myself?

Rachel I too have limited space, but I make it work... you could also tell your friends that if they are willing to hostess the class you will give them the class for free and only charge the others who attend...


But here is a thought, I know for me, meeting the minimums has not been an issue for a few quarters, but I would rather have kept my discount and GIVEN the discount to a few other friends rather than not get the discount...so that is always an option, tell your friends you would like to do it just for the discount and that one order a quarter you will give the 20%...or maybe just do 10%...
I also find that when I offer the free merchandise, like with a 50 dollar order you get a free ink pad deal, everyone LOVES THAT.... it does not cost you 4.95, it is LESS than the 10 % if you were to offer that, and IT INCREASES YOUR SALES...rather than just giving a discount you are getting more product into the consumers hands as well.
Just some things to think about.
